What’s on at Flavorpill: Links that made the rounds in our office


Today at Flavorpill, when we were supposed to be busy working… we were amazed to learn that Barack Obama has 5 million friends on 15 social networks; we felt sad for the generation of kids who are going to grow up on the Playmobil Security Checkpoint (although if memory serves us, we played with some sort of plastic parking garage); we unfairly judged a bunch of lookalike couples but reserved the bulk of our wrath for these harpies; we shivered at the thought of a soon-to-be tween pop sensation, Mackenzie Blue; we ordered out Jane Austen with a side of scary zombies; we swooned over Stephen Colbert on a wire; we wondered if a more symmetrical brunch tastes better (even if you’re not OCD); we enjoyed Gary Shteyngart’s rules for being a novelist; we were entertained by a Mad Men Twitter scandal, but completely scandalized that Bart Simpson is promoting Scientology; we lusted over some nerd merit badges; we couldn’t believe that the Slumdog kids are living squalor; we prayed that the term “mousewife” doesn’t catch on; and finally, we decided that this might be the coolest idea for a blog ever.
